My name is Shakhira Zakhrabekova and I am PostDoc at the Department of Biology, group of Professor Mats Hansson.
Originally I am from Azerbaijan. During last 15 years I have been working in Sweden at Lund University and at Gothenburg University and in Denmark at Carlsberg Laboratory.
My project focuses on identification of genes deficient in barley mutants. Currently, I am trying to identify genes regulating plant architecture.
We have previously identified four different genes and I will now characterize the gene products through more biochemical experiments.
In my private life I am very interested in music, playing piano and cooking.
